I will be back again. I enjoyed my stay. Loved the facilities available. Was disappointed with the ants who got into my food. Was woken up at 6.30 to move my car. Parking was a bit of a problem, but I will be back.

I did not feel welcome, I was not warmly welcomed. It was very difficult to arrange a taxi for a friend. The toilet could not be flushed. On departure I was given a sermon about something I did not do and what the guy at the front desk knew I had not done that. Here I will definitely not return.

I took a few days to break away and relax. I was truly amazed by the great service and "fun factor" offered by Island Vibes at such an affordable price. I stayed in the en suite family room and it suited my needs perfectly. They have a large outdoor swimming pool, indoor braai area (they even supply wood free of... More

For a backpacker place there was very little "vibe" maybe I visited at the wrong time but it was a little bit of a ghost town, the fact that to get a beer from the "bar" involved finding the receptionist then waiting whilst they unlocked the fridge and then had no change when it was time to pay didn't help.

I ended up staying at this place for six nights, even though Port Elizabeth is not the most interesting city. Loved the vibe here, the people are incredibly friendly. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and the location is good: close to a supermarket and close to the beach.

The guest house was ideal. Situated about 15 minutes from the airport. The beach is a walkable distance. Spar and Pick and Pay are around the area Catering equipment enough for a family Family unit was perfect for our young family at a reasonable price.

Had a very good introduction to the facility. We had a very friendly welcome from the receptionist, who was very helpful in fulfilling our requests. We did not have any contact with other staff members since we were out most of the time. Very well run facility.

Nice and clean with a pool and a bar. What more could you ask for! It's not a party hostel so don't go there looking for crazy times but if your after chilled vibes with all mod cons then you won't be disappointed!
